I notice the example in the comments of the 'users' file references
the check item "User-Password" not just "Password". That might
make a difference.

Another option: Are these users going to be in your local *nix
password file (for mail or login)? If so, then don't specify passwords in 
the users file at all. Just use an Auth-Type += System, and let FR pluck 
it from the system files.
